I danced before I had two feet.

Sang before I had a tongue.

I laughed before I had two eyes.

Loved before my heart was young.

I swam before I had two hands

and held the distance in my toes.

Before I heard the stars I knew

the wild compulsion of the rose.

I bore the fruits of many lies.

Before I came into this day.

I knew before my grave was made,

the worms eat only death away 

the worms eat only death away

I danced before I had two feet 

I danced before I had two feet

I danced before I had two feet

I danced before I had two feet.
